    I'd Love A Penpal

    I've always wanted a penpal who'd like to write letters about anything and share thoughts, emotions and experiences. Does anyone want to be my penpal? Message me or post a comment.

    I love to talk to other people

    and find out how different their life is from mine. I have had a penpal before and we would talk through email but after awhile we both just kind of stopped. I thought it was fun before so I want to try it again.
